Give Thanks!

Thanksgiving is a very special time when we get to reflect on the blessings in our lives.  With that in mind, I'm very excited to link up with the teachers at What a Teacher Wants and their Thankful Linky Party.

1.  What are you thankful for in your classroom?
This year I'm thankful for a new LCD projector, thanks to a mini grant from our PTC!  The projector has enabled us to use the Scholastic News Interactive site, which is chock full of activities and helpful supplemental material.  When I project onto my white board, it's almost as good as a smart board because the children can highlight, underline, and circle specific words or text features, and then just erase it away.  I love it!

2.  What person are you most thankful for?
It has to be my mom, who is 85 years young.  She is a brick, and has always been there for me with the most practical advice.

3.  What 3 blogs are you most thankful for?
This is a hard one.  I'm really thankful for just about every one.  I learn something new with each blog I read.  However, having to pick three, I'd say I'm thankful for GradeONEderful, Ladybug's Teacher Files, and the Clutter-Free Classroom.

4.  What guilty pleasure are you most thankful for?
Oh my, I love candy.  Just love it, especially if it's combined with chocolate.

5.  What am I most thankful for?
My family and friends, hands down.  I love them all!
